Weight Loss – 7 Mistakes You Can Avoid



Being on a diet can seem like your fighting a losing battle. This is the case for many women but quite often it can be remedied simply. You will discover the secrets of losing weight and keeping it off below. Try and avoid the 7 mistakes listed and your dieting should yield the results you crave.





STARVING DOES NOT LEAD WEIGHT LOSS

1. Don’t starve yourself. You need to eat properly to see any real weight loss. Calorie counting is not about making yourself sick due to a lack of nutrients. Do not skip meals. A healthy balanced diet is essential for you to see and remain in good condition. Exploring the extremes will only result in failure or making yourself ill. Plan your diet carefully and persevere.

REALISTIC APPROACH NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE GOAL

2. Be realistic about your goals. If you set the bar too high you will feel discouraged when you cannot reach your initial goal, and then probably give up. When deciding your goals and a time frame to achieve them, be realistic. Set yourself a smaller goal and when you achieve that you can move on to your next weight loss goal. We all wish we could lose weight quickly but like most things, it takes time and effort.

SHARING THE IDEAS WITH YOUR FRIEND WEIGHT LOSS PLAN

3. Do it by yourself. If you find a friend or colleague trying a similar weight loss plan then doing it together will improve your success rate. You can help each other when one of you is having a tough time the other can encourage you to keep going. Sharing ideas about meals and general moral support are also benefits of having a friend on board.

DENYING YOURSELF DESERVE TREAT

4. Don’t deny yourself. You deserve a treat now and then, whether it is ice cream or your favorite cake. A treat after achieving a weight loss target can help maintain your sanity. This is ok as long it is a treat and not a regular occurrence. Any more than this will result in another failed weight loss attempt.

AVOIDING EXERCISE IN REAL WEIGHT LOSS

5. Avoiding exercise. Dieting alone is not enough if you want to see any real weight loss. Having an exercise routine to complement it will help shed those pounds. If it is only walking at your lunch break, this is better than nothing at all. Exercising keeps the metabolism of your body at a level where it can help burn fat more efficiently. Along with a healthy weight loss diet, exercise can help you gain strength and tone your body along with losing the weight you want to get rid of.

MISTAKE OF FOLLOWING TRENDY DIETS

6. Following trendy diets. Every so often jumping on the bandwagon of the latest craze can have benefits like quick weight loss. In the short term these diets may work but long term you can do more harm than good. Many of these diets, deprive you of certain nutrients and as a result, can leave you without the energy levels you once had. After a short time, you will start to put the weight back on. You can consult a nutritionist if you are unsure about the best weight loss techniques, that are good for you and will enable you to maintain your target weight.

 LIVING BY WHAT THE SCALES SAY

7. Living by what the scales say. It is a common mistake that women will weigh themselves far too much and then react accordingly. You should be following your healthy weight loss plan along with an exercise program. This will yield the results in the long term and as a result, be more sustainable. Your weight will fluctuate and freaking out over a small increase will not help the situation. Be intelligent, remain healthy and most of all are realistic.
Understanding where your previous attempts have gone wrong is a must. After all, you do not want to make the same mistakes again.
